I took a vacation from blogging in case you didn't notice to spend some time with Sweet Farmer, to care for my Mom after an emergency operation and.... just because.... well, I got out of the habit and I'm a creature of habit. I've missed my blogging friends and staying in touch. I hope you all haven't dropped me from your blogging roles and that I can hear from you again.
She was really Sweet Farmer's dog, and Annie was mine but now we have no inside dogs for the first time since we were married. I painted this little sketch of Sweet Farmer and Scottie, a starving stray we nurtured back to health because I know that I mustn't take their friendship for granted. We must enjoy them while we can because they are each one a very unique creature and a gift and privilege to know and care for.
Just as caring for my Mom after an emergency surgery on a perforated bowel was my pleasure and a unique time to share with her. I will always treasure the time we spent together during her recovery.
So that's what I did through the month of June, basically.
I have missed you and hope I haven't been away too long and that you'll come back to visit me as I get myself back into the habit of blogging again.
